Who makes raw bass cabinets to order?

Recommended Posts

I dont need any finish (I have that) or stuffing or hardware, I just need someone to make me a raw lightweight cabinet out of 9mm ply for 6 to 10 Phil Jones Bass speakers I chanced upon. I would love a small 6 x 5" pjb style cabinet, these drivers are only ~400g each. 6 forward facing, or 4 x and 2 x upward -- small and light as possible.

I even have port hardware I just broke a toe and am not going to be making wood things.

Sounds ideal. I’m looking for small and light 

It’d be copying the PJB dimensions of a 6 x 5” so I know the internal volume — give or take.

16.4 x 12.6 x  27.2 inch  (415 x 320 x 691 mm) (W x D x H)

That will be a nice cab. I have five PJB 4x5 cabs and love them. How did you "chance upon" 8 or 10 PJB drive units?

You will need to increase the cab size over the 6x5 if you  intend to add two up-firing drivers.

No but I have 4 more than I need if all I get made is a 6-er. These are the older generation which are from the Briefcase /Suitcase. Brand new, same footprint, amazingly light just not as light as the neopowers. I paid about £250 for all 10.

They would be perfect, as my cabs (4B and C4) have the older non neo drivers and it would be good to have spares. I'll pm you.

It may be a long shot, but Zilla cabs may be able to do something for you.

That's probably where I've been going wrong in the past.  I've always used my hands. ☺️ That said, any woodwork project of mine always turns out like I made it with my feet.

@Cosmicrain may be interested? :)

As I recently brought another new CNC earlier this year to help with my Zoot bass business, I was thinking (and only thinking) of doing a very small run of light weight Purple-Chili cabs to use up my stock of ultralite 12mm & 15mm ply etc that was/is left over from my Purple-Chili cab/amp building days. As I said, only thinking at the moment.

Oh wow, I wish I had been in your shoes!

Superb find.

For my own personal needs I'd be making up two 2x5's.

All the best with this project, can't wait to see the results

I sold off 4 of the ceramic ones leaving me with 6 x 5” neo power drivers. They are loud little things. My tiny little CUB II B110 uses just two and its plenty loud enough for home.

Ok @Dan Dare 4 surplus ones are yours.

Aren't Zilla USA? There's a Noisy Hammer Cabinet Co in the UK. They look like they make custom cabs

No Zilla are based in Cornwall, well worth a shout.

A couple of quotes are coming in at £450 — £550 (finished minus the cost of an ICEPower Amp)  plus extra wiring and safety/compliance test and so on — so I’ve decided to back out, cut my losses and get a real deal cabinet. I can get a new PJB C8 for about £650 and used for less. The economies do not stack up for me so I’m selling the drivers (while possibly keeping a few for spares).

False alarm, sorry all. I used to be a lot more DIY but less so as time goes on.
